Geoff Merrill with his straight talking style did plenty to get Australian wines on the world map over the last 20 years. And this Chardonnay certainly brings me back to the glory days with ripe tropical fruit flavours and some generous creamy oak. Pure sunshine in a glass!

The colour is a light straw with green hues. The aroma is very varietal, showing nectarine, rockmelon, lime and fresh cucumber with subtle and well integrated oak characters of lightly toasted cashews and vanilla cream. The palate is wonderfully rounded and filling, yet the underlying structure is tight and refreshing. Complex flavours of melon, lemon and stone fruits fill the mid palate blended with hints of creamy vanilla toasted oak and finishing on a fresh fruit note.
Geoff Merrill Wine Reviews and Accolades
"There are aromas of cream, toast, and
peach on the nose. Generous and rich
palate, with some stone fruit and
cashew notes. Overall a style that has
softness and generosity, but without
being overblown, some vanillin notes
also showing through. Well integrated
and easy drinking style." - David LeMire MW
